    Since I don't have much time to type up an encyclopedia on the subject ill be adding stuff to this thread. First off I don't sell this but I use it frequently with customers and personal cars not a single complaint but instead keep getting calls on how to restore to showroom shine so ill be...

    Today when i was driving back home in freeway 405 S, I encounter a 2012 TW si with 4 muffler tips 2 on each sides and it look sexy. I dont i know if hes here in the forum but his car looks sick. From my research i only know that Magna Flow sells their exhaust with two muffler on each side but...
  6. Audio/Video & Navigation
    Not sure if anyone has posted these and I didn't see them in the manual so I thought I would share. Just a few tips I ran into while monkeying around. 1. If you are running your USB stick on random for playing tracks you can hold down the right arrow key on the steering wheel and it will take...
  7. Drivetrain Problems
    I've read about how to launch a car on the street and at the track, and everyone says to hold it at about 2500, then slowly release the cluth while rolling on the throttle. That works generally for me but i wanted to know if there are any better or more specific tips for the Si. Anyone?
  8. Detailing, Wash & Wax
    Being that I live in snowy Northeast Ohio, I wanted to post a thread on proactive ways to protect your Civic Si from winter abuse... However, since this is the first car that I actually care about, I don't have many tips to share. I have heard of the applying oil underneath the car to prevent...

    It's National Tire Safety week and with summer upon us now its a great time to get out and do a quick air pressure check and tread depth check before hitting the road for your summer vacation. Here's a few tips from our Nascar Driver Brad Keselowski and The Weather Channel. If you don't...
  13. Detailing, Wash & Wax
    I used to work for a high-end detailing company so I figure I might as well offer up some little tips/tricks/whatever. I'll probably miss some stuff but oh well. DISCLAIMER: I'M NOT SAYING THIS IS RIGHT WRONG OR OTHERWISE. The process we used was as follows: Wheels: Using long brushes to...
  14. Sedan
    So, I saw a couple threads about muffler tips, but they were about the Si muffler or had specific questions about buying a particular tip. Use this thread to post pics and talk about all muffler tips for the DX LX and EX (tail pipe pointing downwards). Here's mine.....anyone working with a...
  15. Detailing, Wash & Wax
    Anyone one else find cleaning the inside of the windshield a bit of a pain? The long windshield combined with the high dash make it hard to reach all the way down to the bottom. Anyone got any tips or handy little tools they use? Thanks.
  16. Exterior Problems
    After having a GREAT lunch @ Ruby's, I came back to my car to discover this: I don't know if you guys can see it from the picture, but it was initially A LOT worse. But I was able to get 80% of it by using the Co2 / Compressed Air + Hairdryer method. I also used a small shower suction cup...

    Well i guess all those myths we used to follow and know about are false.. at least according to cars.com. Well a lot of it makes sense and they actually did the research to find this all out. Has anyone heard of fuel myth's other than what i just posted?
